aluplast has reported the continuing rapid growth of its UK business, announcing a jump of more than 25 per cent in turnover year-on-year from 2014 to 2015 – a period in which the industry as a whole declined in volume.
The German systems house, also announcing that it was on target to achieve significant project growth in 2016 with Q1 up around 30 per cent on the same time last year.
Ian Cocken, Director of Sales and Marketing, aluplast, said that aluplast’s resurgence and rapid growth was being driven by a growing recognition of the efficiencies delivered by its technically advanced Ideal 70 offer.
He said: “The Ideal 70 and ecotech Ideal 70 systems are designed specifically for the UK market. The cutting-edge technology in those systems is, however, the product of global-leading research and innovation programme, which has been distilled down into one of the UK’s most thermally efficient and innovative window and door systems.
“As a fully suited system the core offer is good to manufacture, while we also offer one of the UK’s and Europe’s widest foil ranges, which are available in incredibly competitive lead times. That means they can offer a better service to their customers and build greater margin into their model.”
Processing more than 150,000 tonnes of PVC-U in Europe annually, equivalent to 75 per cent of the whole UK and Irish markets combined and with its worldwide customer base manufacturing more than 10million windows per year, aluplast remains a global leader in window system technology.
The Ideal 70 is an energy efficient five-chambered fully sculptured system designed to deliver a host of manufacturing efficiencies to UK fabricators. This includes an optimum 44mm flush triple-glazed beading option, which contributes to up to a WER A++ rating.
Fully integrated hardware and appropriate reinforcement, also make it a proven Document Q, PAS24:2012 and Secured by Design system. The ecotech 70 is the systems company’s calcium organic stabilised, ‘green’ offer.
It also offers a wide range of ex-stock standard colours available on its customers next delivery and special foils orders within 15 working days or less, with no set up costs and no minimum orders.
Cocken continued: “We’re picking up business first and foremost because of the product – its performance and the efficiencies that it delivers in fabrication and installation.
“There is also a slight undercurrent of uncertainty in the systems market in the UK. There have been a number of changes in ownership, there are other companies launching new systems – if you’re a fabricator that can be unsettling.
“We offer a proven and technically advanced product from a global leading systems company and we underpin that with dedicated support from right here in the UK.”
